The Main Event

The ultimate animal lovers adventure, this popular Meerkat Experience will thrill anyone who adores these small eccentric and amusing creatures as they’ll get to see them up close!

Available for either 2, 4 or 6 people for 1 hour, you and your friends will not only get to hand feed the crazy animals but you’ll also get to help the farm with their enrichment as they use you as a climbing frame! You’ll also be able to stroke and play with one of the hand reared Meerkats, all of which are incredibly tame.

You will be accompanied by a fully knowledgeable and experienced staff member who will be able to answer any questions you have about the Meerkats so you can really learn about these fascinating creatures.

Once you’ve finished with the Meerkats, you be able to enjoy access the farm. This is a great chance to really get closer to the animals and fully understand them meaning you’ll have a great day out with memories you’ll treasure for a long time.

Great Reviews

  • Amazing

    Absolutely loved our entire time at Whoozoo.
    All the animals were fascinating but meercats along with the people who care for them were just a joy to be with.

  • Kids loved it

    Was treated to this as a family gift and my kids loved it. The meerkats were so sweet and having the chance to stroke them and feed them was incredible. A great thing to do with kids and the rest of Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World are worth visiting too.

  • Cute

    Was so fun to get to know the meerkats, pet them and feed them. They jumped up on my lap like a small cat or dog. So cute!

  • Meerkats

    After a 2 hour drive we were able have breakfast at a garden centre before entering the zoo. It was more of a wildlife park and the animals were well hidden inside their sleeping quarters because it was so hot. The Meerkat experience was enjoyable, although the staff member that introduced the experience seemed bored and spoke so quickly we didn’t understand what to expect. The guide we then had was very knowledgeable and the contact with the Meerkats very rewarding.
